Wyborowa

This vodka is awesome for the price. One of those overlooked drinks that fall between the cracks. It's balanced, nuanced and has a full mouthfeel without being overwhelming. Works in a variety of contexts. You won't be disappointed!

Grey Goose

It's OK. Subtle aroma of lavender and a smooth-ish finish make this vodka quite drinkable (straight, not mixed). But don't be fooled by the price or hype. There are many better vodkas for a LOT less money.

Ciroc

This stuff is awful. With so many great vodkas in the world, don't bother.

Zubrowka

I first tried Zubrowka many years ago and liked it immensely, but tired of it before the bottle was empty. Now I have a new bottle and the result is the same. It does have a unique flavour, but that said, it IS flavoured vodka. The grass is a lovely aroma, with hints of cinnamon and a slight burn. But it is not, by any means, a really good vodka. For true vodka drinkers, it's a gimmick.

The Little Water of Life

Many nations of the world have a singular drink that they have come to be identified with and that has come to be identified with them. For Russians (and Poles, Belarusans, Finns and Ukrainians), it is vodka.

Vodka on the Zakuska Table
Vodka on the Zakuska Table

Vodka is an essential part of the Russian zakuska table. When a liberal amount of the potent stuff is supplied to guests, the meal not only will be off to a fast start, but to a rollicking one as well.

Sure, vodka is great to drink. But did you know it also has myriad medicinal, home-improvement and cleaning uses?
